Sony Mobile Game Controller
Sony has designed a mobile gaming controller, particularly for playing mobile games using the game controller for iOS and Android users. It has been announced that the Japanese branch (SIE Japanese division) of Sony issued a patent last week. This controller is similar to the DualShock 4 but only has one part, it is cut in half.
This one is like other smartphone controllers, that will hold the smartphone in between. The new mobile sticks look just like the old DualShock 4 and they even follow its basic design. However, thanks to their Bluetooth capability they also provide tilt-controls for games that didn’t originally offer them.
The controller will connect wirelessly to the smartphone via Bluetooth. Additionally, the controller will have its own battery and rumbling motors. This controller will require a smartphone to work. We don’t currently know more specific information about this device. According to the drawings, the device seems to have been heavily inspired by Nintendo’s Joy-Con controllers and even lets you connect to a bigger screen. However, this feature might only be available to those who own a PS4 console.
Sony Mobile game controllers are compatible with Android devices and also iOS. This means that it will be possible to play games from Apple Arcade Games on this device, as well as through cloud gaming. Sony has recently appointed Nicola Sebastiani as their new Mobile Gaming VP, and they seem focused on that for now, the former head of Apple’s Arcade content, to lead the company.
